    Hey Roger, it seems lots of Bigots Bashes will be taking place in Retirement Land ie the East of England:

    Brexit celebrations going to be a little bit racist, admit Brexiters

    MOST of the Brexit celebrations planned for Friday will be xenophobic bordering on actually racist, Leave voters have admitted.

    Events to be held up and down the country are likely not to focus on international trade agreements but hostility to foreigners and re-enactments of World War II.

    Got your effigies of illegals at the ready...?


    The ultimate irony is that not even Big Ben will be chiming it in due to the wonderfully productive UK workforce who couldn’t get it working in time.

    Couldn't we make it a bit more like a traditional Cruise stop off? Maybe Robinsons could sell watermelons, have a few touts hanging around, some nanas knitting tea towels and someone selling fake Rolex watches and Louis Vuitton bags made up in Jurby. Give it that local vibe.

    Maybe Mr Callister if he’s so keen on developing our cruise economy could be our own Lucky Lucky Man?

    I’m not sure it is nonsense to be honest.

    More like they’ve realized phone and 4G reception at those sites is shit and they don’t want bad reviews so they try to make people live in 1950 instead. You wonder what the cost is of handing out this ancient kit to people and where in this century they can get film developed?

    The mother of my two young wish children walked out on them because she couldn't keep her knickers on when she was anywhere near a local who had a rally car.

    You didn’t buy that Subaru then?

    Who's Ged Power when they are at home? Is he/she in a position of some notoriety to qualify for their two pennyworth on MR?

    Retired copper and anti bullying campaigner now in tourism. He probably posts on here to be honest on account of the fact that, despite seeming like an ok fella, he seems to be blathering on about very little on various forms of social media for about 20 hours a day.

    But they don’t ever talk with each other. I’d agree with the above too as outside the Sefton / Villa looks highly likely to be ground zero for this clusterfuck by then so they probably moved the event 15 miles away just to be sure. 

    It will be like the Jackson's fiasco. All because the Rally was booked on the prom same day,

    They may have more heavy vehicles but none suitable for home deliveries. Can't imagine anybody being happy with a 40ft articulated lorry turning up to deliver their weekly shop

    Yawn, the forums serial arguer looks for any green shoots to create another argument. They are a serious distribution company with lots of contracts on and off Island with various vehicle formats.

    The amount of bickering that goes on between PB and Neil you would think they were an old married couple..

    The amount of times that you seem to come to Neil Down the trolls defense when he kicks off you would think he must be your mentally handicapped cousin.

    My title says he was defrauded by an IOM company which plainly he was. 

    He was only doing what most securities houses are doing with high frequency trading to inflate share prices. He reported the ability to abuse the system to the regulators several times then when they did nothing about his reports he decided to have a go for himself on the basis that the regulators seemed happy for it to continue as they did nothing. It’s not really fraud I’d say. He could just run the numbers and do the maths to manipulate the trading outcomes.

    Before taking the opportunity to slag off the local constabulary it would be nice to know the facts, which quite rightly this thread will not expose!

    Well the fact is it’s got to court so you presume the AGs office saw enough evidence to send it to court?

    only if it was actually something that posed a danger so they can all back slap themselves on saving the day and get a medal,  if it was harmless birthday present for a child that they destroyed for fuck all  there will be a silence of embarrassment for a short while and then a 'could have been' list to frighten the plebs into shutting up about it.

    True but you’d think the press would be pushing for a statement?

    Stuff that might require analysis or in depth investigation (for example the health service) gets minimised in favour of simple stories and passing on the latest 'statement'.  

    That’s all this was. I believe something cropped up when a package was scanned and then they go into emergency mode which includes firing out a press announcement. You can’t expect the people at 3fm to look out the window.
